Governor Signs Hospital And Highway Funding Bills

Sacramento, CA — Governor Schwarzenegger has signed legislation to remove funding roadblocks for a series of highway projects and for hospitals serving the state´s neediest patients.

The highway bill preserves $822 million in funding for 29 projects, including expansion of the Caldecott Tunnel in Alameda County, a new car-pool lane on Interstate 405 in Los Angeles County and a new six-lane freeway on Route 905 in San Diego County.

The hospital bill provides $18 billion in federal funding over five years for hospitals that serve low-income Medi-Cal patients and the uninsured.
